Numerical methods for two and threedimensional viscous flows
Abstract
An overview of the main options available for the application of finitedifference methods to two and threedimensional recirculating flows, either laminar or turbulent is presented with attention focused on the alternative paths that can be chosen for the solution of the discretized NavierStokes equations. The merits of basin methods on the use of density as a main dependent variable in preference to the pressure are examined and techniques based on the use of the pressure are discussed, within the context of practicability and generality of application to engineering problems. Where possible, recommendation of certain choices are made. Sample calculations carried out for a variety of two and threedimensional flows are presented.
